I'm not sure why that should be an error? There are 3 ports with single letter names:
% port echo ?
The glob pattern "[apache2]" will return one these (e), while the glob pattern "[mysql5]" will return another (q).
% port echo [apache2]
% port echo '[mysql5]'
I don't see an error. Am I missing something?
